  • EXCITABLE media can support spiral waves rotating around an organizing centre1–7. Spiral waves have been discovered in different types of autocatalytic chemical reactions8,9 and in biological systems10–12. The so-called 're-entrant excitation' of myocardial cells13, causing the most dangerous cardiac arrhythmias, including ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation, could be the result of spiral waves1,2. Here we use a potentiometric dye14,15 in combination with CCD (charge-coupled device… CONTINUE READING
